STATUS QUO VADIS



The installation Contained Poetry on Rathausplatz engages with stories in general. There are "announcements" — posters, a collaborative work by Rita Vitorelli and the Swiss graphic designer Dan Solbach, whose point of departure was everyday graphic design: actions like the redesign of the flags, which makes one think of a 'history', an action, a performance; a vase in a shop window with neither a description nor a price tag, about which one can invent a story, or ask what is it about such enchanted objects in a souvenir shop. The title, Contained Poetry, is intended to trigger a change in the process of perception or envisioning the whole square. It plays with the word 'contain' to the extent that all things have a presence that alludes to a past or a future and so are not entirely in the present. The poetry is in the working with imagination and the ascription of a poetry to the square that it did not originally possess. The issue is not that one translates works into 'meaning' (e.g., a flag relieved of any symbolic function is intended as political criticism), but that one can think up concrete stories to keep the context of the meaning liquid. The interest here is less in the object-like in itself but more in the gestures and associations that can be catalysts for contents. The issue is also to think outside the box about public art.
